This plane was made by Will Lourie, a planemaker working in Edinburg between 1774-1813. For a 200+ year olf plane it's in excellent conditon. It's got some wear and a nice patina but no damage other than a bruised nicker wedge finial. it's still dead on straight. The blade is a bit short but usable. There's nothing to prevent it from being usable. It should require just a sharpening. It's an incredibly well-preserved, early plane in a highly desirable size.

Big 7/8in British Side Bead molding Plane.
This plane has had many owners over the years, each of whom fought with name stamp and mallet to claim ownership over this tool. it's been well used but remains in good working condition. The boxing is straight and the blade very clean. The maker's mark was long ago stamped over in the Fracar of the Upper Toe ca. 1900-1902. The resultant mess left us with no clear winner, only an illegible maker's mark. A good, usable plane for larger house and architectural moldings. Add your mark to it, if you can find room.

MaydoleCarpenters hammer.
This is a medium sized carpenter's claw hammer made by Maydole, the creator of the adze-eye hammer. . It has long sweeping claws that differentiate it from a ripping or framing hammer. The handle is in excellent condition and beautifully waisted. the only flaw is a small chip from the thin part of the claws. It's a small imperfection and Maydole hammers are in such demand (and a favorite of mine) I'll list it for sale despite the damage. This size and shape make it a good hammer for use at the bench. An ideal worker.

Interesting, Early Wedge-Arm Plow/Rabbet Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark that I can see, just "RLONG" at the toe which I think is an owner's mark. It's made of cherry I believe, but I could be wrong. it's surely not beech. It has a lot profile and keyed wedges to hold the arms. It holds a 3/4in wide straight rabbeting blade. It could be a dedicated plow, an adjustable rabbet plane, or even a sash fillister. It's a mystery. It's surely a well made plane and looks like many user-made 18th century style New England plow planes I've seen.

Very Early American Crown Molding Plane.
This plane is a classic example of a late 18th or early 19th century crown molder. it's made of beech and has an offset tote with a fishtail finial. There is a helper handle to assist the user in pushing the massive blade through the stock. It holds a 3 1/8in wide tapered iron that is in amazingly good conditon considering its age. The plane is marked "GD" at the toe, a mark I don't see in AWP-IV which does not surprise me. It's in very good conditon overall which, considering its age, is quite surprising. It'll make a great addition to a collection of early planes and crown molders.

Ohio Tool Co 1/4i Side Bead.
This is a decent, usable 1/4in side bead, a very desirable size among workers. It's about the typical Ohio quality, not the best but usable. The blade needs a grind to make it match the sole. Once sharpened it'll work.

Interesting Birmingham Plane Company Block Plane.
The Birmingham Plane Company operated in what is now Derby, CT. This block plane is the largest of the three sizes they made measuring 7in long and holding a 1 3/4in wide iron. This model was offered with and without a blade adjuster- this example does not have it, nor is the blade prepared to accept an adjuster. It's in fair condition overall and could definitely be used. The lever cap has a pronounced hump where the user's palm rests. As you can imagine these planes are frequently found with cracked caps. This one is intact. the blade is clean and crisp. The sides of the plane flare out a bit and there are small cast nubs to hold which make for a more comfortable and secure grip than other block planes. An interesting plane in solid user condition

Reid Patent Lightning Brace.
This was made in Philadelphia, Pa and patented December 12th, 1882 by A.H. Reid. This is the model no. 2 which uses a spring-loaded chuck with a pin to engage a small hole in the bit shank. This example has its original bit which can be seen in the photos. It can accept standard tapered square shank bits if you drill the appropriate hole. It's primarily used for quickly driving screws but could also be used to bore small holes with the proper bit. It has a nickel-plated shaft and a lignum head. It's in good working order
